it makes sense that someone who likes a particular style of dress would also like other material things that complemented that style. but it's not always true. also not everyone has the means or the desire to, for example wear a minimalist designer head to toe and live in a John Pawson flat.
however, it is nice to see fit pits against a simple backdrop without dirty undies on the floor.
@conceptionistSo what your saying is don't dress in designer cloths unless you could afford designer furniture, oh and a nice car to match your style? That may well be the most moronic shit I have read on here.
No, that's not what I was trying to say and I hope you understand that.
I'll admit I find it hard to explain. Basically, if you can afford to buy outfits for several grand, you could also spend some of that money on other stuff to round things out. I'm talking about the small percentage of people who own a ton of baller stuff but essentially are poor college students. IMO, Those guys would be better off in most cases by spending that money elsewhere or you sort of just get "half of it". You get the clothes, but everything else is lags behind. If I had 2k to spend , I know I would feel better about myself if I would upgrade several different things I like rather than blowing it on one leather jacket, or at least save half of it. It just seems that the clothes some people wear are detached from the rest of their style, like they've bought into the hype. I've probably been a victim of this myself. It's jush something I think is worth having in mind.
You guys thinking Abraxis is fat is making me laugh and angry at the same time. I mean if he is fat then what am I? He looks fine to me. Having a twinkish slim built doesn't always mean that you are healthy like what the fashion magazines have bombarded us all to believe. Yes I respect an individual who has the discipline to stuck with a regular routine of diet and exercise but in reality this is not always the case because there are also others who starve themselves and have eating disorders, smoke ciggies that causes cancers to keep themselves skeeny. I don't mean to be a Debbie downer but it's just the truth. So I think it's not good to be over paranoid about body image. As long as you are eating and healthy and not starving to look a certain image.
Do you really have to ask us? but if you need a reality check then yes you are fat.
Some people don't prioritize fitness or improving their body image. Fine, whatever, that's their choice. But on a forum where people get off to an outfit's silhouette, it's not unreasonable to suggest someone wear clothes that compliment the body they do have. It's perfectly fine here to tell someone they have stumpy legs, which they have no control over, but if you point out that someone is overweight... well that's just offensive. I don't get it.
And abraxis, the above comment is irrespective of you or any comments made towards you earlier.
I think you know the answer to that already.
That's exactly my point, the root of the problem lies in the fact that all the "regular" posters don't give a shit about fitness so then the general concensus becomes you (or I in this instance) being the plague de-railing the thread from "fashion"
It's also funny because people will say; i.e; "those boots don't work well with that fit, theyre too clunky, etc" So how does that differ from someone not looking good in the clothes that they buy because they are out of shape? This is the perfect example of modern america of "accepting" and being "happy" with the way you are when theres a fine line between being lazy and fat and settling to be that or make the decision to know that you can change your body shape drastically to the way you want.
Abraxis's response is the typical "oh i know i'm overweight but i've come to terms and i'm happy with myself" type of thing.
